City Shopping Centre
Sense of arrival plays a critical role in shopping centre design. Successful architectural statements create a presence through their scale and hierarchy. They can promote activity along its edges and become a meeting hub of the community.

The colourful travelator canopy creates a bold sense of entry into the shopping centre.
With the user in mind, our vision was to create an innovative new experience for the customer as they travel from the car park into the shopping centre. This became our concept vision for the project which needed to be translated through the design.
A number of unique architectural concepts were designed and analysed before a final concept was selected. The concept using tensile fabric was chosen as it was seen as the most striking and unique architectural statement.
